that when susan rice was sent out to tell us it was in response to a video and just a spontaneous act. what, please put this in perspective for us. >> well, let's have the most generous interpretation possible for this administration. when eli lake broke the story, why i think it is wrong, this is only explanation possible. when eli lake broke the story. megyn: "daily beast". >> yeah for "the daily beast", soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some of the individuals involved in the attack. another one said we had two kinds of intelligence on one guy. we believe we had enough to target him. these guys have return address, camps people and variety of things we could do. if you had intelligence about a possible terrorist attack would make sense not to tip off al qaeda that we knew so we could have element of surprise if we wanted to respond to it. the problem with that is, one we didn't respond. it has been 17 days and there have been no drone strikes on al qaeda camps or, return address hasn't been hit anywhere. two, there is difference w hole holding intelligence and lying abou
susan rice is programmed to say this was a spontaneous event, not premeditated or preplanned. those were utter falsehoods. i won't say they were lying but some briefed them and told them to say this when the intelligence agencies found out 24 hours later and fox news reported 24 hours after the event this was a preplanned terrorist attack. who programmed carney. who programmed susan rice? she only has one superior, that is secretary of state. carney has three superiors, chief of staff and head in sa and president of united states. i think you have a conspiracy to get by the administration and to make sure that no one says there has been attacks during barack obama's tenure. what gets me, the top intelligence committee comes out oh, yeah, this was a preplanned terrorist attack. we spent $60 million for these folks. are you telling me they just learned this? where it gets to the media, back in the nixon days, they would have been all over this from day one following it up. these folks, many of them, not all of them and not all on the left, they are in the tank for barack obama culturally,
way beyond what is in the document specifically the statements of susan rice that spun the story that was hijacked by extremists and then launched an assault. we're going to look back on the period and original reporting as really changing the dialogue publicly about this attack. we reported a day after the assault based on an interview with the head of the house intelligence committee in was premeditated commando style attack. then with my colleagues pamela brown, on the 17th after the ambassador wrote his comments, we reported there was no demonstration at consulate when the attack happened. then my colleague bret baier was the first to report that a guantanamo detainees was suspected of having a role into that attack. you make a good point. we've had three terrorist attacks on the obama administration's watch yet they have failed to call them as such or delayed in their branding as such. fort hood where i've done an extensive investigation, how can they brand that as workplace violence. it's just dishonest to if i could take my reporter's hat on for a moment. >> that what some
lawmaker to call for u.n. ambassador susan rice's resignation. he objects to her going on the sunday talk shows two weeks ago and stating that the libya attack appeared to be a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video when there was already evidence that it may have been a terror attack. >> either ambassador rice was deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold the position anymore. the entire administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world. virtually everything she said was wrong. >> others are praising ambassador rice, a spokesman for president obama saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations, and the state department says she provided the information there was at the time. another statement, i'm particularly troubled for calls for ambassador rice's resignation. she's a remarkable public servant for whom the liberation of the libya people has been a personal issue and public mission. she's an enormously capa
.n. ambassador susan rice to resign. king says she needs to pay the consequences for misleading americans about what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed
attack and yet for nine days, susan rice and others went out and said this was spontaneous mob violence related to. >>tube clip. we know that's not true. why was susan rice out on the sunday shows making those statements and trying to cover up what actually happened. that's the real question to look at here. >> jennifer: right. it seems like you're talking about two different obviously incidents. one is the egyptian embassy and the one is the libyan compound. there were two different things but the question i think is -- on everybody's mind is it is always difficult when you have an international incident to speak too soon. that probably could be said of the administration as well as of governor romney before he had gathered all of the facts. i guess the question that many people have is it proper to be criticizing an administration in the middle of a crisis? >> well, look, we're in the middle of a presidential campaign and the foreign policy is something that's critical to the campaign and so it is going to be d
. the stories about what exactly happened that day. susan rice on this program said it was a spontaneous response to an anti-muslim film. since then we have learned that it was on organized attack and that some intelligence and pentagon officials suspected that early on and that's prompted this criticism from governor romney. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inscent response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened. >> the chairman of the homeland security committee peter king has gone even further calling on susan rice to resigned. >> absolutely not. george, there's been an ongoing investigation. so, there's been information provided real-time. you'll know more about an event a week after it happens. >> officials in 24 hours that suspected it was a terrorist attack. >> what ambassador rice and others were doing were going on what our intelligence we were receiving. let's talk about governor romney for a moment, you know, we're happy to have a debate about our approach to terrorism and foreign policy. the president promised t
of the house homeland security committee. it all started when susan rice made remarks five days after those attacks. listen here. >> there was a hateful video that was disseminated on the internet. it had nothing to do with the united states government and it's one that we find disgusting and reprehencible. offensive to many, many people around the world. that sparked violence in various parts of the world including against western facilities including our embassies and consulates. >> the obama administration eventually labeled the attack on that consulate in libya terrorism. the chairman of the house homeland security committee peter king thinks there should be consequences to rice's original comments that you heard right there. here's what he said to wolf in "the situation room" friday. >> to rule out terrorism, to say it was not terrorism at that time was, to me, a terrible mistake to make whether it was done intentionally or unintentionally and i believe she should retisign, yes. >> let's bring back obama campaign supporter general wesley clark and rich williamson, former diplomatic, a
, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for political purposes. so the question we have to ask is did they do this out of incompetence or are they liars? >> that's a good question, penny, even just yesterday, james clapper, the director of office of national intelligence came out and said, look, this was sort of our fault. we didn't have all the information right way way. however, witnesses on the ground, they seemed to know it was a terrorist attack and as we now know the white house internally labeled it as a terror attack and they knew there were the al-qaeda off shoots, may have been preparing stuff for september 11th. is this a failure of intelligence? >> again, let us go back. there's a lot of different informati information, and in a responsible manner and go out-- the president, i'll remind everybody, the president the day after in his st
, but they sent out susan rice, hillary clinton, cents out jay carney, everybody top down including the president up until yesterday's blaming something that they know is factually inaccurate. they said that has nothing to do with america, an outright lie, to not only the american people, but the family that lost loved ones. >> yep. the one thing they've decided can't be discussed for the next six weeks is his performance in office. the blame campaign throughout four years has showed you that they're allergic to accountability particularly, but generally when you're allergic to accountability it leads to cover-ups. i've proven they've participated in cover-ups. there's an electronic bonfire in this administration, destroying records. they're on aol for their sleazy programs, the solyndra program and so on. they have a privately-owned computer service for the white house to conduct discussions about confidential troubling u.n. programs that bother a lot of people that they might want to know about this. >> sean: how do you know this? >> from the freedom of information act, investigators, and inter
questions for that as well. the stories about what exactly happened that day. you and ambassador susan rice, on this program, after the attack, said it was a spontaneous response to an anti-muslim film. since then, we have learned that it was on organized attack and that some intelligence and pentagon officials suspected that early on and that's prompted this criticism from governor romney. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inconsisten t response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened. and a complete failure to explain the growing terrorist threat we face in the region. >> the chairman of the homeland security committee peter king has gone even further calling on u.s. ambassador to resign, your response. >> absolutely not. susan rice has done a terrific job. george, there's been an ongoing investigation. an event to great interest to the news media, understandably. so, there's been information provided real-time. you'll know more about an event a week after it happens. >> there were officials in 24 hours after it happened that
. >> within one day intel forces told fox news the administration knew it was an attack. they sent susan rice out to say the attack was at the hands of an unruly mob. when asked about the 24-hour time line the secretary of defense dodged. >> a terrorist attack ignited as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it was clear terrorist planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved what specific groups were involved the investigation is ongoing. we will get some of the feedback from what happened at that location. >> according to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff there were broad signals an attack may have been in the works. >> there was a threat of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western correction in libya were seeking to coalesce. but there wasn't anything specific. >> despite the fact that four americans were is too unstable. the investigation hasn't started yet. it was clearly a terrorist attack why the administration refuses to say that. this president had deceited al qaeda.
happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whet
. >> here's my question, then. because congressman peter king is calling on susan rice to step down, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever
conference about it. the last we heard beyond jay carney's pressers, is susan rice saying this is unrelated to the video, a lot of gray matter that surrounds what went down. it makes sense mitt romney would try to exploit that for campaign purposes and because he probably does have questions as many of us do about what exactly went down and whether there was breach of u.s. intelligence? >> i think both speeches today and overall of state of the race now is that caution is the operative word for the administration. right. they don't want do anything to disturb the patterns in the rate which are all moving in their direction. the libya story has been the one sort of story that persistently is sort of gnawing away a bit at their need to keep things static. the administration doesn't want to do anything to sort of bring more attention to that, obviously. because right now look, most voters are not voting on foreign policy. this is a domestic policy election. there's a limited amount of currency that the romney campaign can get from foreign policy but the one thing the media is interested in so
by it gets worse and worse for the administration. now to refresh your memory, here is what ambassador susan rice said on september 16. remember, u.s. intelligence officials have told fox news they knew on september 12 it was a terro
that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a
. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whether i feel more comfortable knowing the ad
in susan rice's head that it was september 11th that this happened? why did they put it out? because he didn't want his narrative in the middle east contradicted. things are moving in the right rection. things aren't moving in the right direction. they're moving back in the other direction and he made a lot of the wrong bets. get rid of mubarak, gadhafi. >> you think getting rid of mubarak was a -- >> i probably agree with hillary clinton. that mu babarak moved out more carefully with more emphasis on what comes about mubarak as opposed to, we move out, an ally of the united states, and replace it with a guy who would like to have the blind sheikh return to egypt, the man who wanted to bomb my city, was responsible for the attack in 1993 on the world trade center. you don't think things like that destabilize the middle east and make people wonder in the middle east about president obama's judgment? >> governor romney said he would support democratic values. on another hand saying he would basically fund candidates to win that are friendly to the united states. how is that espousing demo
-qaeda-related group. and yet you heard the white house, the administration including ambassador susan rice saying, no, no, no, that's not it at all. now, listen f deception and -- if deception and lies and cover-up is proven, this thing could spiral out of control and really damage the president's prospects, couldn't it? >> well, if you can prove deception and cover-up and lies. i think it was more incompetent and failure to get their talking points straight. gregg: isn't that equally bad? >> i wouldn't say it's incompetence in terms of knowledge, i'd say it's in terms of language. gregg: incompetence in terms of ability to handle a crisis. >> well, listen, handling a crisis not in terms of the messaging, but in terms of how we address what happened in libya are two very different things. it remains to be seen -- gregg: the murder of four americans, the first time in 30 years. >> you and i agree. gregg: you've got anti-american -- >> you and i are not disagreeing on this topic. we fully agree that we need competence when it comes to policy, but it's very different when you're talking about one person
. that's now, norah. >> as you know libya -- what susan rice said on a number of shows over the weekend which you have criticized -- i read this morning. >> i was on after her. she said they had no evidence that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. how could you say that when mortars indirect, direct fire and heavy weapons are being used at this is as a result of a spontaneous demonstration? also incredible to blame it on a video. it's not the video. its the islamist using the video. >> do you believe that al qaeda is behind the attack. >> i think that this was an orchestrated attack. clearly the organization that was heavily involved is involved with extremist organizations. and so i can't say exactly but it's clear that there's a connection between these people and to say that it was a spontaneous demonstration is really beyond belief. it shows a fundamental pwarfare but of what's going on in that part of the world. >> you raise the issue how do you make these embassies more secure. we have to turn to politics. >> could i say its the obligation of the host country but our obligatio
